Brandermill is a community with a unique culture. This is where trees with brilliant colorful foliage, delightful parks and invigorating nature trails are loved and appreciated by every resident. Our first residents moved here in 1974. We were one of the first large-scale planned communities in Virginia then and the careful planning paid off. Only four years later we were recognized as the “Best Planned Community in America” by Better Homes & Gardens magazine.

Young families through retirees make Brandermill their home thanks to our top of the market home values. Homes here range from $150,000 to more than $800,000. There is not a community in Virginia that has as much to offer at such affordable prices.

This is a community loaded with amenities for all tastes and interests. Every property buyer knows the three key elements for a successful real estate purchase are location. location. location. Brandermill has all three starting with Chesterfield County, the place to be in the hot Virginia real estate market. Now add our 15 miles of walking/biking trails, three pools, six parks and playground areas, a top ranked golf course and then throw in the water feature to beat all water features, the 1700 acre Swift Creek Reservoir.

Residents here are members of the Brandermill Community Association. Every resident has access to the reservoir, the marina and our boats for rent program. The Brandermill Sailing Club hosts regattas from April through October. If fishing is more your style, cast your line to your heart's content from boats afloat, the shoreline, or a Brandermill dock. There is a prize winning fish waiting for you in the Swift Creek Reservoir.

For members and non members alike, the Brandermill Country Club and the Midlothian Tennis Club are visual jewels at the center of our architecturally balanced neighborhoods. The Country Club features 18 holes of championship golf, a private pool and Clubhouse. Score your next Ace at the Midlothian Tennis Club right next door.

Dianne Cardea, a resident for 34 years, enjoys the community’s accessibility to the Richmond area. “Everything is pretty much at our doorstep,” she says. She is a fan of the Brandermill Green Market in Market Square which is open Saturday mornings from May through October. “We have a huge turnout of vendors,” she adds. Market Square is also home to specialty shops, restaurants, and business and medical offices, as are other commercial areas throughout the community including: Colony Crossing, Waterford, Nuttree, Genito Station, Sunday Park, The Grove, and Harbour Pointe.

Another plus for residing in Brandermill are the excellent Chesterfield County Public schools that Brandermill students attend: Swift Creek and Clover Hill Elementary Schools, Swift Creek Middle School and Clover Hill and Midlothian High Schools.

Chesterfield County has one of the finest public school systems in Virginia. Our children receive a quality education at Clover Hill Elementary School, Swift Creek Middle School, Clover Hill High School and nearby Midlothian High School, all located in or very near your Brandermill residence.

Sunsets at Brandermill can be breathtaking. Sunday Park is a particularly favorite place to watch, including views for those seated on the deck at the popular Boathouse Restaurant. Watch the lake water sparkle like diamonds while a dazzling sun settles beyond the western shoreline every night. Welcome home!
